Especially "Cloudy Headingley".

Michael Vaughan made a good point that it should be the coach not the money men who chooses the venues so they can pick 4 grounds (plus Lords) which give England the best chance of winning.

I'm and old fart and personally think it should go back to tradition for the Ashes. 5 tests :

1st Test - Edgbaston
2nd Test - Lords
3rd Test - Headingley
4th Test - Old Trafford
5th Test - The Oval

Durham could only half fill the ground for a ODI.

Though I do believe £60 is a bit excessive. People are starting to be priced out of cricket now.
